What you need to know
- A press render of Motorola's upcoming 5G-enabled G series phone has surfaced.
- The render reveals a quad-camera setup on the back and two hole-punch cutouts on the front.
- It is possible that the phone will use Qualcomm's recently announced Snapdragon 690 chipset.
When Qualcomm announced its new Snapdragon 690 earlier this month, Motorola confirmed that it is working on an affordable 5G phone powered by the chipset. Reliable leaker Evan Blass has now shared the first render of the company's upcoming budget 5G phone, which will likely debut sometime later this year.
The render reveals a phone with dual hole-punch cutouts on the top-left corner of the display. Unlike other phones with dual hole-punch displays, however, the "Moto G 5G" will not have a pill-shaped cutout but two individual cutouts. On the back of the phone, we find a quad-camera setup with a 48MP resolution primary sensor. The render also suggests the phone will have a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
At this point, the key specs of the upcoming Moto G 5G phone remain a mystery. However, it is likely that the phone will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 690 chipset, which has been designed to bring 5G to affordable phones. Apart from Motorola, other Android OEMs such as HMD Global, LG, and TCL are also expected to launch 5G phones powered by the Snapdragon 690 chipset later this year.
The Moto G Power is among the more impressive budget phones that Motorola has launched this year. It offers excellent battery life, a triple-camera setup on the back, and great software experience.

With delay after delay pushing back the Pixel 4a's launch into July and possibly August, it would make a lot of sense for Google to simply call it the Pixel 5a and launch it alongside the Pixel 5 in October.
